Pictures Speak Louder Than Words on Cigarette Labeling
Date:1/17/2013

THURSDAY, Jan. 17 (HealthDay News) -- Tobacco warning labels that include graphic pictures of the health consequences of smoking are more effective than text-only warnings among all groups of smokers, according to a new study.

Researchers examined the reactions of more than 3,300 smokers to cigarette warning labels. The smokers said the warnings with graphic pictures were more credible, had a greater impact and strengthened their intention to quit, compared with text-only warnings.

Many experts have said that text-only warnings would be unlikely to be noticed or to have an impact on smokers, the researchers noted.
